Newly weds, Charles and Maureen Ahize open up on their love story

Popular businessman, lawyer, and politician, Charles Ahize, 52, two weekends back married 25year old  ex-beauty queen (she was Miss Malaika 2005) and Insurance marketer, Maureen Emenalom in an extravagant traditional wedding which took place in the bride's home town in Mbaino LGA, Imo state.
A few days ago, the newly weds opened up on their love story to City People Mag.

How we met. Maureen Ahize:
The first time I met him was when I was 17. That was almost eight years ago. As the years rolled by, I kept bumping into him most times I came to Lagos from Owerri. I didn't grow up in Lagos, I grew up in Owerri.
Whenever we met, he would greet me and say I have refused to ask after him. I will just say hi and we go our separate ways. At first, I didn't really like him because I felt he wasn't serious and he was probably just out for fun. He is a club person. He likes to go clubbing. Whenever I was in Lagos to see my sister, at times we would go clubbing and I will see him. And I always wondered why he was in clubs.

We met again sometime last year and he began to pester me again, that he wants to date me. We got talking and he told me how much love he loved me and how he is free to date again since he had broken up with his wife. I wasn't seeing anybody at the time so I said let's start dating. I was later able to confirm that truly, he was broken up.
I found also that he's a very nice man, very sweet and caring. I didn't see any reason not to date him.
How we met: Charles Ahize:
I met my wife when she was very young. I met her as a friend, not a girlfriend. When I first met her I was married. I met one day when I was traveling. On that day I flew in an aircraft that didn't have first class so we were all in a central area and we had a political discussion. I saw this small girl contributing intelligently. She spoke very well and was very bold, very analytical. When we go to where we were going, I saw her getting her luggage and I offered to drop her where she was going.
The next time I saw her was at a ceremony and I recognized her. What actually attracted me to her was her diction, her voice and the unique way it sounds. But more importantly, her high level of intelligence. This girl is brilliant. Once you start a conversation with her, what will play out in your mind is how I wish this girl is my daughter, sister or wife because she's very sharp and clever. Because I enjoy her company alot, we became friends.
Over the years we kept bumping into each other. We kept seeing maybe once in 6months or so. Eventually my marriage ended. I met her again two months after I got separated. She came to my club, Tribeca, for an event. I challenged her that you don't ask after your friends. She said can I tell you the truth? I don't like to keep friendship with married men. I then told her I was no longer married, that my marriage had crashed. She said okay I should give her sometime to think about it. She also said I needed time to take care of my crashed marriage, that I need time to tidy up myself. She took her time to investigate that I was truly single again. We began to see then I began to see that spiritually we had a connection.
It began to play out. I then realized the humility in her in accepting a job as an insurance marketer. She didn't say it was belittling of her to be a marketer which exposes her to all sorts of danger. I could see a girl that actually has a focus. My marriage to her is not only to have a wife, I also want to help build heer up because she a focus and also help her realise her dreams.

I believe life is all about politics, if the man had no money the the girl would have said, old fool! And her parents will contribute in chasing him away.
But now that there is money who cares, the story now is e no matter age na number!

Good for them. He likes jail bait, she likes old men.

All this one that they did not see each other before his marriage crashed is BS.

As for him letting us know that he flew in an aircraft that did not have first class, who really cares?

what is belittling (sp) in being a marketer? nonsense.spoil jobs for some pple u hear?hisssssss.

anyway back to ur love story......she's 25,u are 52 abi?do u know she's old enuff to be ur daughter?or u just sha want a young blood that will keep u looking younger than ur age.and do u know one thing about marrying someone a lot younger than u is that u struggle real hard to come down to her level.u have to come down to d level of a 25 yr old girl to relate with her and her friends.don't expect her to come up to ur own level.it's not possible.cos she is not in her 50s yet so she wont understand d level of a 50 yr old man.
i wish both of u luck and God's guidance.......erm,Mr aHIZE,I THOT THEY SAID U HAVE BEEN MARRIED TWICE OR THRICE?

Who are they deceiving but themselves. Adulterers.

You were "friends" with a girl of 17years and it continued for 8 years ( iam very happy for you). My daughte rwill come and temm me a man more thn twice her age is her friend and i will not be afraid.

You say u dont want to be his friend again as yu were not comfortable, how will you be comfortable.. when ur hands r dirty...

aaabbeeeeeggggg Please call a spade a spade, move n with you lives but dont try to deceive anyone as you will only end up sounding stupid.

Totally disgusted @ i flew in an aircraft that does not have first class....the comment is totally out of context.Who asked him? Is he better than people that fly cabin? Old man reasoning like a child.God help him!

Buzzer! said...

Utter Crap!!! This 2 stories sound so rehearsed. They have both (shamelessly) agreed what they will tell the public was how they met. But seriously, who cares? You are both married now, keep the cinderella stories to urselves. Well,next time, baba Ahize, if u enter a plane that does not have 1st class cabin, u can ask the pilot to shift for u in the cockpit as it will be 'belittling' of u to sit in the central area.
Agadi ekwe nka! mschewww
17yr old girl? you are shameless
(you guys can now officailly 'bump into urselves' everyday and not once evry 6months like u have been doing for 8yrs)

The first thing i thought of doing when i saw this post was to lol
''...I saw this small girl contributing intelligently....''
Hmmn did i hear the paedo alert go off? anyways happy married life oo before some anon call me a Hater!

truth said...

Not hating but this "he said, she said" article is just weird and funny. Infact I laugh in Japanese.

The part that got me was when he said she's the kind of girl you'll want as your daughter, sister or wife....Mr man, of all the relations mentioned, the most sensible role she could play to you was wife??? lol..not daughter??

Oh well, all the best with this hook up.

lmao.. First of she insinuates that she's 25? hahahahaha.. Then comes the grammar.. Oh my! lmao.. How much love he loved you? he was broken up? Mind=Blown.. lol.. And then comes the dude.. "I flew in an aircraft that didn't have first class?" I mean who gives a fuck!

key sentence here is "We met again sometime last year and he began to pester me AGAIN".. She said "AGAIN" meaning he had been pestering her even while he was married. Case closed...

Not really in support of their union,but Maumau is really nice and has a good heart,she was also very smart in school,atleast i know she was one of the smartest we had in GPD .I just hope her friend Jessica Ngozi will be able to find an old man too,because that one nah certified ashawo,ABA BROUGHT UP!!Maumau couldnt have gotten a better husband lets face it,she already lived a reckless life so all that should matter to her now is wealth not love.I like maureen really i do,but nne eh the kind life wey she live eh :/Charly your own case is still pending,''ihe ojoo niile imere ka n'eche gi''I really did like ur calabar wife,werent you the one who often bragged to my hubby abt how good she was???Well sha i know you and i know maureen personally,and i wish you both the best,just be sure God will not punish you both.

the man wants a beautiful girl and he has money to trade the girl wants money and she has beauy and her youth to trade so why begrudge the two of them

Anonymous said...

I'm sorry but the girl doesn't look like a 25 year old... She looks wayyyyyyyyy older than that....

Anonymous said...

enough 40years+ igbo businessmen have been marrying young 20yr old fresh graduates for ages now. So why is there much ado about this couple?
what is the difference abeg? 50 to 25; 45 to 21 ..... all na the same.
maybe the only difference is that for the 45 year old man, that's his only marriage while Mr Ahize has been married how many times?

Anonymous said...

i am 25 and my dad is not even 50 yet. talk about perversion. and diction? yeah i really heard some diction in both your words. in your not-so -properly constructed sentences. and that girl looks nothing like my age mate. she looks early 30's. Maureen honey, get ready you've got urs coming.

At 17, even a guy of 21 was old for me. I was looking at guys my age and a maximum of 19! It's obvious she's had a hard life at 25. Look at how hard she looks.
Charley Akpuruka has never confessed to be big on grammar. He thinks with his money he can walk into any place. A sad state of affairs.

of course the whole world knows maureen is in her mid 30s she only cut down her age for the beauty pageant. and to you maureen, expect your younger wife soon cos ahize has already started the relationship. what goes around will definitely come around.

Y'all are haters, let them folks alone and let them figure out how to make this work. She's a woman and he's a man period, as long as she's not under age. Everybody's using everybody in this world no matter the circumstance. I wish them all the best from the bottom of my heart. the girls are mad 'cos they missed out and the guys are jealous 'cos Mr. C got something something. life's too short to be hating. y'all take a flying you what to the moon and leave them the hell alone.
